The company would not say why she faces extradition, but at Meng's bail hearing Friday, the Crown revealed she is wanted due to an investigation into fraud and violations against US sanctions against Iran.
Meng is accused to have previously insisted the two were separate companies.
The prosecutor said Meng had personally denied to USA bankers any direct connections between Huawei and SkyCom, when in fact "SkyCom is Huawei".
Meng, who also has used the English names Cathy and Sabrina, served on the board of Skycom between February 2008 and April 2009, according to Skycom records, and several other past and present Skycom directors appear to have connections to Huawei.

"Meng being released on $1 million bail would be like asking upper middle class Canadian family to cough up $136", she paraphrased the Crown as explaining, before noting that Meng's "father has a net worth of $3.2bn".
Chinese Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said on Friday that neither Canada nor the U.S. had provided China any evidence that Meng had broken any law in those two countries, and reiterated Beijing's demand that she be released.
On Friday, Beijing nevertheless alleged that Meng, known internally as the "princess" of Huawei and possible heir to the throne, had become a pawn in the dispute. Trudeau said at the time that he had not been in contact with China or its ambassadors about the case, CBC reported.
USA officials are seeking her extradition so she can be prosecuted in the US on fraud charges, the prosecutor said.
